We Have an Early Christmas Gift for You: the Release Date of And Just Like That…
Ever since the news broke that Sex and the City was indeed being revived, albeit, sans Kim Cattrall, fans of the fashionable original have been plagued with questions.
Who would take the place of Samantha at the group’s brunch sessions? Are Carrie and Big still together or has their tumultuous relationship come to an end? Who from the original series will be returning for the new iteration?
While most of those questions have been answered in one way or another (although the jury is still out on the fate of Carrie and Big) the most pressing mystery remained: when will it be available to watch?
The series is currently still filming in New York and features new cast members such as Sara Ramirez, Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman.
The returning cast, in addition to Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, includes Chris Noth, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, John Corbett, Willie Garson and Evan Handler.
Tragically, Garson — who played Carrie’s best friend Stanford Blatch — passed away in September 2021 after a secret battle with cancer.
Parker paid tribute to her co-star and confidante with a beautiful post on Instagram which read, in part, “It’s been unbearable. Sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship.
“A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie’s apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.
“Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls. Your absence a crater that I will fill with blessing of these memories and all the ones that are still in recesses yet to surface.”
